... the train station. Train 1 took us from Venice to Venora about 1hr. Train 2 took us from Venora (Italy) to Innsbruck (Austria) about 2 1/2 hrs. Arrived at beautiful hotel and Cameron is watching kids cartoons in German. It doesn't appear to matter that he can't understand what they are saying. We are having a quick rest before heading up the mountain on a ski lift. I'll tell you later what it was ...
Today is our last day in Austria. We have had a quiet day in Innsbruck with a tour this morning of the old city, followed by a trip up the cable car to the top of the mountains from the middle of the city. Unfortunately there was lots of cloud so our view was limited. The Church in Innsbruck was one of the most beautiful churches I have seen and we were fortunate that someone was playing the organ while we were there. It is the 5th oldest in the world ...
... dinner. No one seemed too distressed by this apart from a poor young boy aged about 3, who repeatedly tried to shoo the seagull away, only to be pulled back by his father, who perhaps thought young Giovanni would be next on the menu. We moved on, taking in more sights. On our way back to St Marks we could not believe that a seagull (perhaps the same seagull?) was now attempting to kill a rat. The rat fought back and escaped, saving us from another horror. We stopped for Long ...

... the windows. Also lovely views over the river and out towards the mountains.
Moved on then for the two hour drive to Innsbruck. After settling in to the hotel, went for a stroll into the old town centre. Very pretty again with similar art on the walls of buildings. Also saw the house with the gold roof, which was actually only the porch roof but did stand out and very pretty.
Dinner at the hotel - schnitzel and apple strudel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Penz Hotel Innsbruck
Best location, Modern Hotel
The location is the best in innsbruck, it is attached to shopping mall and through the mall you can reach the main shopping St. the restaurants & cafes surrounding the hotel, also the river is 3 minutes away. the trainstation is about 10 minutes walking. the room is a bit small but it is modern as the bathroom. the retaurant is OK and terrace is lovely place for a meal in the sunny days. there is no room service where you may find the front desk staff bring the bottle of water to your room!.
If you like the modern hotels, this is the best in the town.
I stayed at the Penz in July for a few days. From the reviews, I expected a great experience. However, I left wishing I had checked into the Europa Tyrol or the Hilton (both of which I've stayed at)
Boutique Hotel-perfect location!
We just spent three nights at the Penz, a new hotel in the best location in Innsbruck. Just one block from the old town, but on a quiet street easily accessible by car and with a huge self-parking lot, as the hotel is part of a new shopping complex.
Very much like a boutique hotel with modern furnishings and very interesting architecture. Besides the great location this hotel has one of the best breakfasts we have had in Europe with exotic fruit and made to order lattes!
We looked at Europa Tyrol and hilton but chose the Penz because much better location and our stay confirmed that we made the correct choice. Staff was extremely friendly also.
I just got back from staying at the Penz Hotel for 7 nights and I must say it was a great experience. From the moment I checked in to the hotel it had a great feeling. It was very modern and very very clean.
A surprising delight. Made Innsbruck a top spot on our holiday.
After combing the streets for proper accommodations we found ourselves returning to the Penz ( yes we went there first then came back after reviewing other nearby locations ). From the very first encounter with the reception to our last moments of our stay my wife and I were delighted and totally satisfied with every aspect of this amazing first class hotel. Excellent location, a breakfast to rival any you could imagine, beautiful well appointed rooms and guest facilities, highly attractive receptionists, top quality bar and parking near by. This hotel made our one night in Innsbruck an extra special delight. We look forward to returning. Next time we will book in advance to ensure we won't miss out on this Gem in the Austrian Alps.
This is a very nice hotel, central location, clean chic rooms, very clean and comfortable etc. The outside bar on the top floor is stylish and also has great views. The breakfast buffet was fantastic, with everyting on offer you could wish for.
Loved it here. Clean, beautiful, great breakfast, great location. Friendly staff!
I stayed at The Penz for a night during August 2004 and I had a wonderful staying there! This design-hotel is the best in Innsbruck, located in the centre of the city, with fantastic rooms, friendly and kind staff, amazing terrace where you can taste a delicious breakfast or a cool drink under the Austrian stars.. thank you Penz for the really nice staying!!
Thank you Hotel Penz
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Hotel Penz! We will be repeat guests in the near future. The staff is friendly and willing to go that extra mile. The rooms are tastefully decorated in Scandinavian style. This hotel had the only comfortable beds during our travels in Austria. One must go to the 5th floor for a cocktail! Thank you Hotel Penz for a wonderful experience!!!!!!!!!!!!
